  • News This Colourful ARMS Cosplay Will Knock You Out

    It's just a bit of 'armless fun

    We love a bit of cosplay here at Nintendo Life, but we must admit to getting a little jaded about everyone dressing up like Link and Samus all the time.  Enter Reddit user spiggledog who has perfected three ARMS themed cosplay outfits along with his buddies. It's great to see some colourful cosplay on...

    HYPER JAPAN is a wonderful cultural festival that celebrates everything Japanese, and returned to Olympia in London, UK for its three day summer showcase this past weekend.

    Don't worry, Slippy's here!

    We've seen some cool cosplay ourselves recently, but nothing prepared us for the awesomeness of seeing the Star Fox team reimagined in human form. The cosplayers known as York In A Box have been busy barrel rolling ahead of the release of Star Fox Zero on Wii U. In the photos below you can see Chri

    Who wants to be Tingle?

    The Legend of Zelda is a pretty big deal for Nintendo fans. The series is packed with amazing games and memorable characters, and it's little wonder that whenever cosplay events take place, a large proportion of attendees choose to dress up as famous faces from the franchise.

  • News Metroid Fan Film is Light on Action, Heavy on Chat

    Ceres-ly

    We've seen some great Nintendo fan films over the years; films that made us think "if only". This short film, Metroid: Encounter at Ceres Colony, wants to be next. As the name suggests, the short takes Super Metroid as its inspiration but mixes in some elements from the Metroid Prime Trilogy too. Serious Samus fans will also enjoy other...

  • News Link and Ganondorf Combine to Win World Cosplay Championship

    Not sure where this fits in the Zelda timeline, though

    We love people who dress up as Nintendo characters, and we love them even more when they get up on stage in Japan to have a pretend fight in the final of the World Cosplay Championships. Our love for this video cannot be put into words. Taking place in Nagoya, the Italian team of Link, Luca Buzzi, and Ganondorf, Giancarlo Di Pierro, took home..

  • NSFW Zelda, Peach and Samus Shed Clothing In The Name Of Art

    Every Nintendo fan's dream, or nightmare?

    Sex is used to sell an awful lot of things these days, and video games are no exception. However, LA burlesque club Bordello's recent night of video game-themed stripping strikes us as a little bad taste. And we have low standards to begin with! Lucky punters were given the chance to see such highly respected icons as Chun Li (Street Fighter), Princess..

  • News Samus Cosplay Costume Kicks Incomprehensible Amounts of Ass

    Check out the real life Samus in action

    Here at Nintendo Life we’re not that geeky that we spend all of our spare time scowering the net for photos of ladies in videogame themed cosplay costumes, but when something as awesome as this catches our eye it would be remiss of us not to mention it. The lady in this lovely Samus Aran space suit is none other than Thaís Jussim, aka Yuki who is a 26 year..
